“Conventional textile production systems around the world are unsustainable and come at high environmental, social and economic costs. Fibersheds present an alternative to these models - they regenerate ecosystems, create community and grow local economies. We can translate the gains we have made in regenerative agriculture and the local food movement to textiles by re-localizing our clothing.” — Namita Patel
